View Full Version : [all variants] Possible Swiftfox plugins bug (please confirm)

May 30th, 2010, 11:59 PM
It seems the current version of Swiftfox has a bug that prevents it from recognizing any plugins.

When you install Swiftfox, it does create the proper symlink to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, but the plugins are not recognized. If you are using the same profile you use with Firefox, they show up in about:plugins but don't work. If you install a new pulgin, it doesn't show up at all, unless you open the default profile with Firefox, close it and open the same profile with Swiftfox. Nevertheless, it still doesn't work. If you create a new user profile and open only with Swiftfox, the plugin list will be blank.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Note: I'm not looking for instructions on how to install plugins or new browser suggestions. I don't even use Swiftfox. I'm just trying to determine if this is really a Swiftfox issue, so I can provide better support for users with plugin issues.
